Benefits of Red Light Therapy for Animals
Animals, like people, are likely to experience inflammation, broken bones, sprains, cuts and pain. Going to the vet and the ensuing dressing and surgery can be extremely expensive and painful for a pet. Especially with large animals like horses, a minor injury could mean they could be out of work for months.
Just as many people are turning to non-invasive holistic disease treatments, animal owners are increasingly willing to offer alternative treatments to their beloved pets.
Light therapy devices are a very effective treatment for pets, and some veterinarians and pet owners have used red light therapy with red and near-infrared wavelengths on different species of animals.
While red light therapy is not a cure-all, it does provide effective treatments for typical pet problems, such as:
wounds and cuts
ligament and tendon injuries
strains and sprains
In addition to this, regular use of LED light therapy on animals can also have a preventive effect. Red and near-infrared light wavelengths keep joints, muscles and tissues healthy by promoting cell regeneration and reducing inflammation.
